Dudeman,

Why, they are not in copyright?

Long story. Officially you're not supposed to upload photographs of things at the Center for American History, but the guy there gave me an informal "Oh yeah, that alright if they are uncopyrighted. Confirm it with so and so." I uploaded these (in a batch with others) and e-mailed the contact afterwords (my mistake) and, after a long interval when I thought she would ignore me, she finally replied and told me to please take them down, call if you have questions.

Persistent person that I am I did call her, and even got her to speak with someone else in the bureaucracy to get permission; when they called me back they told me I had exhausted my "buck hunt", and had to take the items down. But you can still download them while they are still up.

I didn't know US Copyright law had a provision for hunting bucks :) They must do things different in Texas.

Dudeman,

Some center for American History. These academics would not know the front side of a horse if it kicked them in the face.

Like "pass the buck" -- finding an official who would give me permission. Thats what I meant.
